Jeremy Osborn Always a stellar blend of progressive/sludge/doom. The original song is amazing. The covers are quite wonderful as well, especially "A National Acrobat". Keep up the good work fellas. Favorite track: The Nod.

This EP features our 10-minute sludge ballad, "The Nod", as well as two covers rendered in our distinctive style: Phil Collins' "Long Long Way to Go" from No Jacket Required, and Black Sabbath's "A National Acrobat" from their crushing Sabbath Bloody Sabbath album. Like a classic single with B-sides, we hope you dig these distinctive outliers from our repertoire.

Track Name: The Nod

I know you understand without a word
just one effortless tilt of the head
as our eyes speak what can't be heard
and if we disagree I know plenty of verbs
there are plenty of nouns that can endlessly circle the earth

yes, I see you on the far side of the room
but even if you were trapped on the moon
as long as our eyes and souls intersect
this silent regard has taken effect
we'll share a word once I've taken your hand

do you want me to ask you to stay?
do you need my permission to play?
oh, I know
is this love at first sight every day?
hey, what can I say?
I only have eyes to see you this way

one fleeting, frightened intangible touch
can't form the words but I know they don't matter as much
you have my consent, I'll trust you from here
do what you think best, I won't interfere
what could I say to be any more clear?

what the hell was just said?
you ought to know
not-so-carefully veiling your threat
children throwing stones
or have I misconstrued your tone
well, if we disagree there are plenty of verbs
I know plenty of nouns
that can bury you deep in the earth
